BYU Hero!!!!

My Grandpa Hamblin was honored on Thursday as BYU's Hero! He played on the football team and he was #20.. We had such a good time with the WHOLE family their and we are so proud of our sweet grandpa! We got to take a tour of the coaches office, the team room, the locker rooms, the meeting room where they do all their plans, and then we got to go and watch them practice! After they were done with practice they took my grandpa out to the center of the field and talked to him and gave him a gift, also a jersey and football with all the players signatures and my Grandpas signature on it! It was such a special night! Way to go Grandpa!! We LOVE you!!! GO BYU!

So when we moved into our house up here in Layton, I painted every room because it needed it SO bad... Well I have loved all the colors I did so far but this room, our living room. So I decided to re paint it. I love the color, but that room gets so much natural light that it made the color look weird during the day... I will show you the after pics soon. But for now, here is what I found on the wall from Brady when I got home from dance!!! (which by the way took three coats to finally cover it..) It was so cute of him! I love my man! hahah! I LOVE how it turned out! Pictures to come!

So I thought I would share some pictures of my cute kids who did SOOO good competing in Idaho this past weekend! I didn't take many picture because I was busy haha! They made finals in everything and took many first places! Also my teams took first as well! I was so proud of them, and it showed on the dance floor just how hard they have been practicing! Good job kids! (mom I missed having you with me.. It was a whole new experience going as the coach and not as the dancer!)

Sam and Scott Competed Youth open Latin and took 2nd place! I was SO proud of them!

Yeah for Idaho fun!!!!
